Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences

Welcome to Medicine and Health Sciences

We are made up of four schools: 

Together we deliver world-leading research and inspirational teaching for tomorrow’s scientists, doctors, nurses, midwives, physiotherapists, sport rehabilitators and vets.

Overall we have around 5300 undergraduates and 900 postgraduate taught students in the faculty. Our courses are renowned for their prestige, standard of teaching, international flavour, and employability of graduates.


Our research integrates basic science, translational research and applied clinical activity, with a focus on making a real-life impact on our patients and the public. We currently supervise about 800 postgraduate research students and our research funding totals more than £170 million.

Undergraduate study


We offer a wide range of undergraduate courses including biology, genetics, medicine, midwifery, nursing, physiotherapy and veterinary science.


Postgraduate study

Within the faculty we offer an extensive range of postgraduate courses as well as research opportunities and research training.


The Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences is made up of four schools encompassing a broad spectrum of subjects for students to study.

Our high-quality and innovative teaching in a research-intensive environment benefits our students, our patients and the public. Our key values are excellence and partnership, and we apply these to our teaching and learning, and to our research. Partnerships are key to all our activities and to their delivery.

We work closely across the schools in our faculty, and with other faculties in the University, so that our work is truly interdisciplinary. We pride ourselves on the way we embed internationalisation in all we do, but we also work closely with our local NHS and other healthcare providers, veterinary practices and industry, this brings relevance and real-life impact to our teaching and research.

The Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences is a truly exciting place to learn, to conduct research and to work. Together we are making a real difference to people’s lives.
